Mary Campbell, an independent journalist in Cape Breton, is getting the silent treatment from the person in charge of media relations at CBRM because she is not happy about Campbell’s reporting. Not only is the criticism unwarranted, Campbell suggests, it also makes it difficult for her to do her job. Who is to say what is and isn’t balanced reporting?

Delighted and proud to issue the Nova Scotia Advocate’s first call for (paid) submissions. We’ve been paying some of our writers for a while, now we want to do even more. Read this post for all the specs. And many thanks to all our generous readers who donated and made this possible. Paywalls aren’t an option for us, since so many of our readers are poor. Great to see people recognize that and come through big time.
